Something different this week: we needed to cover an ancient burial site ( Tumulus ) with chainlink mesh to prevent the local badger population from calling it home; this helps to preserve anything inside the mound. The funny shape was caused by tanks driving over it for practice before heading off to active duty in WW1!
The area is called Snail Down at Everleigh. See the Historic England information here.
With thanks to Wiki: A tumulus is a mound of earth and stones raised over a grave or graves. Tumuli are also known as barrows, burial mounds or kurgans, and may be found throughout much of the world. A cairn, which is a mound of stones built for various purposes, may also originally have been a tumulus. Wikipedia
